Draft Standard Lease Applications
Updated June 11, 2019
This page lists the draft standard lease applications that have been submitted to the Department.
DMR requires standard lease applicants to submit a "draft application" to the DMR prior to holding a scoping session. Draft applications allow the public to public gain a better understanding of the applicant's lease proposal prior to and during the scoping session, which is a public meeting designed to garner feedback on a lease propsoal.
Please note that the information provided in these draft applications has been deemed adequate to present at a scoping session, but these applications have not been "deemed complete" by DMR.
For a visual representation of the standard lease application process, please see the Standard Lease Application Process Flowchart (PDF file, 1 page).
